Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment in Gwinnett

Are you looking for effective tarsal tunnel syndrome pain treatment and relief in the Gwinnett area? The ankle contains a pathway that protects the nerves, arteries and tendons, called the tarsal tunnel. This is similar to the carpal tunnel in the wrists and can have similar issues if the tunnel is damaged. Tarsal tunnel syndrome involves symptoms relating to pressure or pinching of the posterior tibial nerve that passes through the tarsal tunnel. If you have symptoms of tarsal tunnel syndrome, our team at Medici Spine & Pain can help diagnose and treat your painful foot condition.

Causes and Symptoms of Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Like carpal tunnel syndrome, tarsal tunnel syndrome is a nerve condition. When a major nerve is compressed, it can cause numbness, tingling and pain. The posterior tibial nerve is the largest nerve in the foot, and it relies on protection from the tarsal tunnel. The tarsal tunnel is located on the inside of the ankle near the ankle bones. Tarsal tunnel syndrome can be caused by anything that creates compression of the posterior tibial nerve, which can include:

  • Inflammation from arthritis or injury
  • Abnormal growth within the tarsal tunnel, i.e. ganglion cyst, varicose veins or bone spurs
  • Diabetes or systemic diseases that cause ankle swelling
  • Those with flat feet or fallen arches can put strain and compression on the tarsal tunnel

When the posterior tibial nerve is compressed, shooting pain, tingling, burning or numbness may be felt on the interior portion of the affected foot. Typically, the sensations are felt on the inside ankle but can affect the bottom of the foot, heel and toes. Symptoms may begin suddenly, especially if the nerve compression is caused by injury or damage to the ankle.

It is important to have tarsal tunnel syndrome quickly diagnosed and treated to prevent damage to the posterior tibial nerve. Continued pressure can cause permanent nerve damage. Treatments can include physical therapy and injection therapy to relieve inflammation and pressure on the tarsal tunnel and nerves.

If you have shooting pain, tingling or numbness stemming from your inner ankle, you may have tarsal tunnel syndrome. Contact us at Medici Spine & Pain to schedule an appointment for an accurate diagnosis and possible treatment at one of our clinics in the Gwinnett County area.

To Dr. Sonny and all the staff at Marietta: What a wonderful appointment I had at Medici for epidural injections! I can't say enough about Jana and Sarah and the gentleman in the back and front office personnel also. They were so caring and friendly; it was quite entertaining while waiting for my turn! They have such a pleasant camaraderie together and engage the patients in conversation too. They bring a very comfortable atmosphere to all. It sure helped pass the time and alleviate any anxiety one might have. The best part is I walked out with NO PAIN. However, later I realized that was mostly due to the local anesthesia... Ha, ha on me! I know it is a temporary fix, but I will enjoy it as long as it is effective. I thank all who I've been in touch with during this journey. You're all awesome at all locations!! P.S. Jana and Sarah: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME ON AND OFF THOSE NARROW TORTUOUS BEDS!!!! It was my biggest fear!!! Blessings to all...."I'll be back!!"

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!
